Hi all

I have only had my mini for 6 months. Driving it away from the garage I could smell burning oil but put it down to sitting idle!! (stupid). Anyway on short quick journeys when I stop there is smoke billowing out of the bonnet and the smell is like burning oil! If I go on a long journey it doesn't happen as much.

Took it to my mechanic who said that is was valve cover gasket was leaking and heat shield is oil saturated, he cleaned it up and did the work but I still have the same problem.

Wonder if anyone can help??
